Human rights tertiary teachers' workshop

 

Academics and human rights practitioners gathered at UNSW Law for a day-long seminar on human rights histories, realities and skills. Close to 100 people from across Australia heard a range of perspectives from teachers of human rights on topics, including using controversial histories of human rights as a tool of rights analysis to equipping future human rights practitioners by examining government agents’ responses to violations. New techniques and resources were also explored with presentations on teaching human rights in an online contex, in situ via a clinic in South Africa and Commonwealth AGs Department representatives considered the legislative human rights compatibility process as a means of creating human rights awareness in the public sector.
